Any change in the program due to any unforeseen reason is the right of the Step on Himalaya but you will be informed on a regular basis.
Food and Accommodation:
During the Kathmandu stay, you can go around the city and taste the varieties of local and international food items. But in the mountains, the food is not the same even if the dishes are named the same. Meals and accommodation are inclusive in the package during the trek. In some places, only basic food items and the lodges or tea houses with basic services may be available. Please consider and try to adjust accordingly.
A valid Passport with a valid visa is essential before traveling to Nepal. The information regarding the other necessary documents will be sent in the email and you are the one to arrange accordingly in your home country. Other required documentation like TIMS permit, permits to national parks, local and government taxes, entrance fees, etc. will be managed and prepared by the team of Step on Himalaya.
